On the Right Side of 2014

   As I was putting the finishing touches on my year end, I couldn't help but notice how many veteran acts are on the last half of Disc Two (save Benjamin Booker, Mr. Little Jeans, and even, by comparison, Andrew Bird).  All I'll say is that the old cats still had it this year.  To encourage folks to go out and buy a new artist they're interested in, all the mp3s are tagged with the album they came from.  I've also re-upped all the best of compilations from years past.  Hope everyone has a very happy New Year.
